Introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith. Young Life is a group of caring adults who go where kids are, win the right to be heard, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to build bridges of authentic friendship. Young Life leaders log many hours with youth. We listen to their stories and learn what's important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks. Established in 1941, Young Life is a faith-based mentoring program for youth. In recent years, there has been extensive research documenting the positive impacts of mentoring youth. According to the Office of Justice Programs, mentoring programs provide guidance and support necessary to help young people build self-confidence, learn positive behaviors, stay in school, and avoid potential pitfalls like drugs and gangs. According to a study funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, youth who participate in mentoring relationships experience a number of positive benefits:
-Mentored youth have better school attendance, a better chance of pursuing a higher education, and better attitudes towards school.
-Mentoring helps prevent substance abuse and reduces negative behaviors.
-Mentored youth have better relationships. They tend to trust their parents more and communicate better.
